And he completed the most unlikely of hat-tricks early in the second half to earn himself the man-of-the-match award in the 59-5 success.

On the first day of the Guinness PRO12 season – and in a year when places in The British & Irish Lions squad for the 2017 Tour to New Zealand – Parry couldn’t have asked for a better way to kick off the campaign.

And it was a record-breaking day for Parry, who became the first Ospreys forward ever to score a hat-trick.
